We’ve all done it. We’ve all stayed out for too long during Britain’s brief summer, or forgotten to reapply sunscreen because we were having too much fun at the beach. If you’re prone to burning rather than tanning, you’ll know how painful (and embarrassing) sunburn can be. You’re destined to spend weeks with itchy, peeling skin, and perhaps even months with a reddened complexion!
Although prevention is preferable to cure when it comes to sunburn, there are still some measures you can take to make sunburn a little more bearable – and perhaps even accelerate the healing process.
